25 years in Alresford

The Giles Group has now been established for 25 years in Alresford.

The founder members were mainly women, who saw the need to pass on their knowledge of help and support systems and networks to other disabled people.  Three of these pioneers still live in the Alresford area: Tessa Purkiss, Hazel Worland and Mary Keer. Sadly, in January 2019, Fabia Wrigley finally lost her long fight with Multiple Sclerosis, aged 74, and a Service of Thanksgiving for her life was held in St Johns.

Regrettably also, our past Chairman, Brian Purkiss, is no longer attending meetings, having moved to live in a Nursing home locally. The members are grateful for their contributions to establishing and running the Giles Group in Alresford.
